Invest in your success, join the NANP

 

As Nutritional Therapy Practitioners and Consultants, we see our share of challenges. Oftentimes it’s difficult to know where to turn next. Luckily, we have a great resource in the National Association of Nutrition Professionals (NANP). The NANP is a community dedicated to furthering the cause, education and standards of the holistic nutrition industry. Many NTP/Cs have found partners and mentors to help them remove obstacles and find new opportunities, while others rely heavily on NANP’s discussion forums to solve difficult client cases. The NANP’s mission is to advocate for and empower our flourishing community of holistic nutrition professionals. They invest in these 4 critical areas to our success:

  • Advocacy. Protecting and defending your right to practice your profession. The Council of Holistic Health Educators has proven to be an important NANP ally for keeping on top of pending legislation that could negatively impact your ability to follow your true calling as a holistic nutrition professional. Through this relationship, NANP members gain visibility and are invited into national conversations on diet and nutrition. Continued growth as an organization ensures that nutrition professionals are no longer left behind or left out of crucial decisions that affect not only you, but also your clients who are struggling with today’s allopathic approach to healthcare.

 

  • Credibility. Ensuring that the highest educational, professional and ethical standards are in place for those who belong to the NANP. In today’s world where nutrition credentials are deeply scrutinized, your NANP membership mitigates the worries clients may have in deciding whether you are qualified to help them. And their board certification, the “gold standard” credential for the profession, is available only to professional members of the NANP. Those who earn this designation are finding more opportunities in the market and are attracting higher fees for their services, too.

 

  • – NANP views their community as family. If you are a solo practitioner, you know how lonely it can get out there! Your membership gives you access to many hundreds of like-minded nutrition professionals around the world who are actively engaging with one another for clinical and emotional support. In a world of increasingly greater disconnection and “virtuality,” this single aspect of being an NANP member is, for some, worth its weight in gold.

 

  • – Last, but not least, is their commitment to your growth: clinically AND financially. This is where things get very exciting in the coming year! NANP’s conference, webinars, CEU providers, approved school programs, and business-building tools are thoroughly vetted for excellence, saving you time and frustration trying to figure it all out on your own. We think you’ll love what they’ve created for you on this front.

 

Take the next step in your NTP/C journey and join the NANP today!

Why you should join the NANP

As believers in holistic nutrition, we share similar values, philosophies, and goals. One of these goals is to thrive in our life’s work and heal our community. One driving force behind our mission is to make a difference in the health of our community by making sure those who go through our programs learn the principles of holistic nutrition and can apply them appropriately and effectively. It’s the next step, whether it’s finding work with others or building your own practice, where the real magic happens! That’s why we would like you to put your faith in us and our ability to guide you and encourage you to join the National Association of Nutrition Professionals (NANP) to support you in this quest. Students and alumni alike have discovered greater credibility, insight, and joy in their work from becoming members of NANP. Many have found partners and mentors to help them remove obstacles and startup new opportunities. Some rely heavily on NANP’s discussion forums to solve difficult client cases. And because their members come from a broad spectrum of holistic nutrition programs, you’ll learn things you might not otherwise be exposed to. NANP’s annual conference is the only one of its kind and is considered to be THE event for our industry. You don’t need to be a member to attend it, but if you are, you’ll get a pretty steep discount on registration fees. And, as you may know, NANP’s credentialing arm, the HNCB, is your ticket to become board certified in holistic nutrition, the highest-level credential for your profession. Board certified nutrition professionals are more likely to find work, charge higher fees, and are viewed very favorably by our allied healthcare friends. MDs join the AMA, an ND joins the AANP, and RDs belong to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The NANP is the association exclusively devoted to you! The impact of our profession on the world at large relies on the strength of your trade association, for ensuring a strong voice when it comes to protecting your legal right to practice your profession. Strength comes from numbers. When you add it all up – the legal support, learning opportunities, discounts and a strong community of like-minded holistic nutrition professionals dedicated to your success – we feel that your next step should be to become an NANP member. We know what it takes to be successful as a holistic nutrition professional and we believe that the NANP is one crucial piece of the equation. Whether you are still a student or have been out in the real world a bit, we strongly encourage you to join your community right now by clicking here.
